Justice: Legal Aid: Immigration Cases (26 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: What assessment his Department has made of the adequacy of legal aid for immigration cases.

Justice: Legal Aid: Immigration Cases (26 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: I was hoping for an answer but did not get one, so let me try this. While we all desperately want to see the Tories’ asylum backlog cleared, this effort must be well funded and must ensure access to justice. What we have instead is an under-resourced bureaucracy and a push to make rushed asylum decisions, combined with severe difficulty in accessing immigration legal aid, and as a result...

Women’s State Pension Age (25 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: WASPI women in my constituency simply cannot wait. In fact, as we have heard across the House, there is not a single constituency where WASPI women can wait. There is a simple reason for that: 40,000 of them are dying every year. Over a quarter of a million have died over the 10-year campaign. Not once have they had an apology or received any justice —and they have certainly received no...

Cyber-security and UK Democracy (25 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: This is too little, too late. It is reactive, not proactive. Two lowly officials get sanctioned when half the UK population’s data and electoral roll get cyber-attacked. I do not feel that the issue is being taken seriously enough. Let me remind the House how serious this is: in October last year, MI5 warned of the “epic scale” of Chinese espionage, and reported that more than 20,000...

Nagorno-Karabakh: Armenian Refugees — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (19 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairship, Ms Elliott. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) for securing this debate, which is long overdue. It is over a year since we debated the closure of the Lachin corridor and the impact of Azerbaijan’s aggressive actions towards the Armenian population of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh. In January...

Israel and Gaza (19 Mar 2024)

Chris Law: The unfolding famine is entirely man-made and is being used as a weapon of war by Israel. It is a war crime, and those who continue to support that collective punishment and deny aid are complicit in this unfolding tragedy. Last week, Janez Lenarčič, head of humanitarian aid and crisis management at the European Commission, said that neither he nor any other UNRWA donor had been presented...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Gaza: Israel (22 Feb 2024)

Chris Law: To ask the Minister of State, Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, whether he has had recent discussions with his Israeli counterpart on Israeli military action in Rafah.

Ceasefire in Gaza (21 Feb 2024)

Chris Law: Late last night I returned from Cairo, which I had visited as one of the members of the International Development Committee to listen to the experience of heads of non-governmental agencies and UN agencies working in Gaza. They described a man-made humanitarian catastrophe, and I am ashamed of the moral cowardice in the response of those in the world who first failed to prevent, and are now...

Chris Law: What recent assessment he has made of the potential merits of the recognition of a Palestinian state.

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Palestinian State: Recognition (30 Jan 2024)

Chris Law: Last night the Foreign Secretary indicated that the UK Government will consider recognising the Palestinian state in order “to give the Palestinian people a political horizon so that they can see that there is going to be irreversible progress to a two-state solution”. Can the Minister explain how that is possible when both the Israeli National Security Minister and the Finance Minister...

Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (29 Jan 2024)

Chris Law: Given the mounting reports of evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity committed by Israel, and now serious recognition by the ICJ of the real risk of genocide, do the UK Government accept that the provision of weapons may lead to complicity in such a crime, and will they therefore immediately cease licensing arms and security equipment to Israel?
